Im here as representative for Ronin5 Gaming, a brand new gaming org formed earlier this year. As our main focus right now is on CS:GO, We are currently looking for a team to represent our brand :
- All 5 players should be 18 years of age or older
- All 5 players needs to be mature and able to show professional attitude. Meaning, humble in victory and gracious in defeat.
- You want to take the next step and gain the skills necessary to work as a professional gamer for the future of CS:GO
- After signing the contract, the team needs to have a solid and fixed roster throughout the contract, meaning, team will needs to stay with same roster or not having more than 1 roster change until the end of the season. It is important for the team chemistry as we are looking for a team who want to grow together with us for long term, not just a one-off.
- Have experience in at least one CSGO competitive league/tournaments below : ESEA, CEVO, ESL, ESWC, WCG, CPL
- Team is currently playing for Main or Invite division and has been around for at least 1 year
- Able to present achievements in both leagues and tournaments for the past year or two
- Team must consistently in communication with us in terms of team development
- Team captain/IGL should have a plan and consistent practice schedule (which includes strategy discussion and game play review as well as in-game practice)
WHAT CAN WE OFFER?
Ronin5 Gaming Sponsorship package includes travel and lodging to attend major LAN event (conditions apply), gaming gears, jerseys, and tournaments entry fees.
Our website (http://www.ronin5.org) and sponsors are still in progress. But if you are interested to apply, please send your application (in english) to firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't agree with that. There are so many teams and the orga clearly still being in developing stages putting this kind of post up works perfect. Why do the extra work when the teams can and should do it :)
They can easily tell if the team meets their requirements. Of course there are teams and players they should contact but those are very few. Maybe the recently released Cursive team or some of the players from TBA etc.
But to start going thru all main/invite teams it would be totally useless.
Also they can (as possible future employers) go thru the applications and see who did the best. If there is a new promising line who puts forth a detailed application with detailed describtion they are worth looking into.
It's way easier to read aplications than go thru the scene asking.
I think it's a bit untrustable IMO. Brand new org, still searching for sponsors and they promise travel + entry fees to lan tournaments? Where are those money going to come from? If they don't manage to attract enough good sponsors?
Themselves? And how long will that last? =)))
Our main goal is to focus on the result before even thinking about finding sponsors. We are not looking to win instantly or aiming to get money from sponsors. We are not aiming to be a top team, at least not right now. We want to be the underdog, we will lose a lot, we might win some, but we will grow and become a strong team that can compete with some of the best teams. We set up an initial funds to let our team grow and able to play on one LAN per year. It is a very small sacrifice for us considering the founders (me and my partner) also have a full-time job in real life. It is very promising for any team and its all part of our business plan.
We would appreciate your support here guys. We are not here to make enemies. Thank you!
well then you can't expect any good teams to apply, no serious team wants to sign itself over for 1 lan for an entire year, outright cancelling it's chances to be picked up by any other organization, since i assume your contract has exclusive clauses
We need our team to show good result over a year in both Online and one big major LAN within a year, then we will discuss about the future (extension of the contract). Any org I believe would do the same. But that is our thing to figure out, for now we just want the team to focus on what lies in front of them and winning as many tournaments / leagues.
We are not looking for a good team, we are looking for a team that is good enough to put some time and dedication to becomes a good team.
well then you're either looking for a good team that can qualify to major LANs, or a team that can't ....obviously any organization preffers the best team possible
let's suppose you recruit some top5 swedish team, and they qualify to 1 major lan, you send them there, then they qualifty for another lan, but you cant send them cus you're out of money, but you forced to sign contract for a whole year, so now they have to leave your organization in order to find more funding, either they have to pay you to get out of their contracts, or violate them outright, OR stay with you and lose chances
any team that asks for contract signing also has to provide proper funding, if you cannot do so, you cannot expect a contract to be signed, and any serious team will never sign a contract with such restrictions, you must rethink your strategy , or else you will only attrack sub-tier teams that cannot qualify to lans at all.
We just got our first CSGO roster and close to sign the deal, but we decided to have another roster since we got support from our friend at web hosting company that allows us having a bit of extra cash.
Team from NA/EU will get priority. Apply by sending in your team past list of achievements and motivation at : email@example.com
it's actually a terrible idea, they obviously don't care about sending these teams to any major lans since they are wasting money, they just want a tier3 team that plays online only, dissapoiting to say the least.
such unproffesional behaviour is very harmful to esports, and such organizations should not be allowed to SCAM people over with restrictive contracts.
The reason why are thinking of another team is because we want to focus on different territory. Everything is not set in stone so things can still change.
Talking about restriction, please stop looking at things so negatively. A team can look at it as a motivation to show that they are worth for our support. And besides, our team actually requested for support to attend a LAN event next month and we do have budget and will support them partially outside the one fully-supported LAN we set as a goal to achieve. So, please do not sprout nonsense if you don't know anything about how we work. Each organization has different rules and expectation. You can't just expect everyone run on the same guidelines and that is something you gotta understand.
I never understand people who enjoy attacking others without even trying to understand it first. Please learn to calm down. Its okay if you express your opinions, but do it with respect, not abuse.
This is why CS:GO community never grow. Too much negativity and prejudice. I sincerely hope things will get better and less negative people in the future.
